    Pffhahahahaha, bet he feels stupid now.

    • mvandinter says:

      It’s important to make your characters look stupid now and again so they seem human. I suppose that means Godfrey isn’t human.

      Not at all, Philo’s correct response would be “Yes, Charlie, just like I said: a primitive animalistic language!” He knew it was French!

      • Kzwix says:

        You, sir, are now the arch-nemesis of all that is France.

        Prepare to evade our Baguette-wielding, Croissant-throwing baker-ninjas !*

        Signed: An aggravated French reader.

        *We only use STALE baguette and croissants for such a purpose. Wasting them when they are perfectly edible would be a crime against gastronomy – which is something we are glad to leave to Anglo-saxon people.

      • Erik Van Thienen says:

        Just like Philo, those who hate French are those who don’t speak it. In high-school I learned French, Latin, English and German, like many students in Europe.

      • mvandinter says:

        Please don’t conclude that Philo hates French based on this page of the comic. It’s not in the text. Philo’s only told by Charlie that it’s French that’s being spoken in the last panel… where he doesn’t even appear.

        • Number 6 says:

          I should have thought that any proper English aristocrat of his day would be required to have an animosity towards all things French.

          Note that *I* have nothing against French, I was just asserting that Philo might. I personally love the French, those Fries they invented are delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Thorin Schmidt says:

            Not to mention that TOAST!

          • Shan says:

            French Fries were probably invented in Belgium.

            • mvandinter says:

              And un-invented in Britain, where they went limp, and were renamed Chips.

              • Shan says:


                Where the sun goes to die. I remember the first day off the plane one time I went, the sun set at 3:52pm. That’s just *wrong*.

              • Crabe says:

                I think the caveman should say
                “Gorgo reviendra”
                That means he will come back

                If he says “Gorgo viendra”, that literally only means “Gorgo will come”. I suppose you need to put some emphasis on the fact he is coming back.

            • Number 6 says:

              Checked the always authoritative Wikipedia to conclusively determine the answer, and Wikipedia did what, due to edit wars, it does best: argue with itself. Who knew this was such a contentious issue? Should I start calling them Belgian Fries? It just doesn’t sound right – “Belgian” goes with “Waffles”. ๐Ÿ™

              • Erik Van Thienen says:

                You have Brussels waffles, Flemish waffles and Liรจge waffles, but “Belgian” waffles are an American invention, based on a simplified version of the Brussels waffle.

                  *In Luke Skywalker voice*
                  My world is now shattered. The only thing keeping me going is the hope of another Unearth strip next month. (No pressure or anything, though)

  2. Michael Valdivielso says:

    French? So it is gibberish! (JOKE)

    • mvandinter says:

      Le franรงais est du charabia? (courtesy of google translate)

      • Kzwix says:

        And an accurate translation, too, for once.

        French reader, here (though I cannot back the original assumption, of course)

        • mvandinter says:

          Let me assure any Francophile readers that the author is among your ranks. My French is terrible, for which I apologize, so it will be limited in its usage on the page.

  3. Marc Luzietti says:

    I knew it!

  4. Wyvern says:

    I wonder how Charlie would react if she heard him calling her a goblin. Hard to know if she’d consider it a compliment or an insult.

    So if Cave-Dwarf-Guy speaks French, does that mean that M. Farraux has beat them to it?

  5. Number 6 says:

    Incidentally, wasn’t the Unearth Patreon goal $200/page before? Or am I remembering incorrectly?

    • Thorin Schmidt says:

      Are you TRYING to screw this up for the rest of us? If the man is happy, let him be happy… don’t go bringing math and logic into this. Who knows what will happen then?

    • mvandinter says:

      Turns out most patrons cap their pledges at $1 per month, so my plan to charge patrons multiple times per month if I resume weekly updates (once for each new page) was seriously flawed. I’ll be setting the pledge back to monthly next month before the beginning of a new billing cycle. Sorry.

      • Number 6 says:

        Ah, I see, that hadn’t occurred to me. I just assumed it was part of your secret plan to post 1,000 pages at once and run off to the Bahamas with the ill-gotten proceeds. Or France. ๐Ÿ™‚

        (Then again, if it was really 1000 legit pages of UnEarth, they would be well-gotten proceeds)

    Testing. Testing 1 2

    Okay, that went through. Now my comment.

    GORGO! You’re really reaching back a few decades now, aren’t you? Gorgo, a large dinosaur like creature from the minds of British film makers from the early 1960’s . Caught in a net of a fishing vessel in the North Sea, and put on display in London for the entertainment of the Londoners. However, not to the approval of its LARGER, and very much, pissed off Mother! Who then comes ashore to promptly hand all of England’s collective asses to them! Then takes home her baby, thank you very much. So, King Clawfoot could just be a baby?

    • mvandinter says:

      I’m guilty of theft on soooo many levels… including Gorgo’s name (Good Catch!). Nonetheless, I have no plans to pilfer the plot of GORGO. Sorry.

      • Number 6 says:

        There is, of course, and actual dinosaur Gorgosaurus, which in size and shape was reasonably close to our friend Gorgo here. PErhaps that is the official explanation?

  8. Thorin Schmidt says:

    Hooray! My physical copy of the Prologue came yesterday! I’m not very awake because I stayed up too late reading it front to back!. and then, just to take in the art better, back to front!

    I think tonight I’ll read it with my head hanging off the couch upside-down! I’m curious to find out how having all the blood running to my head enhances the experience!

  9. Frank says:

    Which explains why Napoleon is in one of the prologues.
